All about me!

I normally don’t participate in Chain type posts but 3 different people tagged me in them, and I thought it would be cool to participate. Heck, I talk so much about my kids, maybe it would be nice to learn something about me! Shaun from Living with Peanut was the first to tag me. She is a fellow New England blogger like me who has an adorable daughter, Paige (aka-Peanut). I love reading her blog and she has some “wicked” cool posts. 

First off, this is me:

Her questions:

1. Were you Team Blue, Team Purple or Team Green for your kiddos? I was team green with Hayley till the ultrasound tech really messed up at 38 weeks and told me. Seriously! I will never get over being mad at this teach. For Zane, we found out at our first opportunity.
2. What is your dream job? I have it- I love being a kids dentist! 
3. Did you go to college? Where and what’s your degree in? Yes, college at Lehigh University and then dental school at University of Pennsylvania
4. If you could move anywhere, where would you go? Easy- Hawaii! I do get to go on vacation there in t minus 6 weeks!
5. What is your favorite part of your personality? I am bubbly
6. Why did you start blogging? As a private blog to my family. I have since opened it up to the public and have not looked back.
7. Do you have pets? If so, what kind and their names? No
8. Favorite picture of your kid(s).
9. Do (or did) you play video games? No but I do work out on my Wii- does that count?
10. Are you planning on more kids? Yes- I would like one more- my husband not so much.
11. What was your favorite grade in school? I loved school but my favorite was high school

Next up is my good friend, Tracey, over at Overmomwho has 3 adorable kids, Charlotte, Logan, and Dominic. This is one awesome lady, as well as blogger, who I hope to meet one day in real life!  She has always been so supportive of my blog from Day 1 and for that, I thank her. Here are her questions:

1. Favorite Color? Definitely pink!

2. How did you meet your husband? Funny- we met at a CPR class! Could you believe it!

3. What moment in time changed your life? When I was in a car accident at 12, where the other people around me were left in a coma. I walked away with a messed up back but I had my life. I always think back to that time and realize that I should never take anything for granted.

4. Have you ever met anyone in real life that you met online? Yes,  Candice from The New Modern Momma. We met on twitter and became good friends IRL. We are actually blogher 12 roommates! I really would love to meet my other twitter peeps too- one day, right!

5. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be? Hawaii and I am going!

6. Best tweet you ever read? When my tweet friends, announce their babies that are born!

7. If you graduated college, do you use your degree with your job? Yes, I am a dentist!

8. If you could change one thing, what would it be? I would have not been in a relationship for so many years with a guy who was a complete jerk. Oh well, you live and you learn!- I guess the experience led me to the greatest guy though!

9. Favorite type of accessory? Earrings!

10. If you were to plan your own surprise party, what would your theme be? Hawaii themed- Can you tell I love Hawaii!

11. Are you more of a soccer Mom type or non-sports Mom type? Non sports mom which is weird because I played so many sports growing up.

Lastly, Michelle from Coupon Queens Throne tagged me in her new blog hop, where you get to know your fellow blogger. She is an awesome blogger who does a Silly Saturday, every week! She makes me laugh and smile! 

Tell us a little about yourself and your blog or blogs: I am a part time dentist as well as a blogger at I started this blog strictly for family and decided to make it public August 1, 2011. My blog focuses on stories on my 2 kids- Hayley who is 3.5 and Zane who will be 1 on March 31. I also do a lot of product reviews/giveaways, as well as a Saturday blog hop for any funny/cute/top 5 laughs of the week. I am really enjoying blogging!
What do you consider your greatest personal achievement? Graduating dental school and getting my DMD
Where is your favorite place to hang out on the Internet? on blogs,lol and facebook
If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would that be? probably my grandfather who I never got to meet. He passed away 1 week before I was born.

    How ironic! I just had a job interview this morning and have been "studying" their website. The guy who interviewed me graduated from Lehigh and then I read your post and noticed you did too! I had never heard of it and now I've heard it twice in one day! Craziness!
